Tiempo Libre + Conjunto Progreso
The Stage (map)
Miami, FL, USA
The three-time Grammy-nominated Cuban music group Tiempo Libre is one the hottest young Latin bands today. Equally at home in concert halls, jazz clubs and dance venues, Tiempo Libre’s Miami-based members are true modern heirs to the rich tradition of the music of their native Cuba. Classically trained at Cuba’s premiere conservatories, today, the group is a hit in the U.S. and abroad, celebrated for its incendiary, joyful performances of timba, an irresistible, dance-inducing mix of high-voltage Latin jazz and the seductive rhythms of son.
Miami's own Conjunto Progreso was nominated for a 2005 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Tropical Latin Album for their CD "Masters of Cuban Son" on Pimienta Records dist. by Universal Music. Their New CD titled "Master Sessions: Descarga & Son: was release in early 2008 on Warner Latin/Union Music/Mojito Records. Ever since its inception, the traditional Cuban Son ensemble Conjunto Progreso has taken audiences back in time to the nostalgic era of early Cuban popular music.
